The Big 60th Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2020)

Help us set a new world record at the big 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there next year. As of last year we have a new area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 7th, 8th, 9th of August 2020 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

Hi Guy's,

I bought my material in a fabric shop about 6 years ago.

It's like a velour material and has lasted all this time and still going strong considering the use. Well, worth the money at £3.99 a metre :D

I did re-use the foam cushions that came with the Portafold, as i said further up this page, to buy new foam was a shock for good quality foam :shock: and something i could live without as i wanted to buy ther things for the Portafold.

Hi,

Your not wrong there !!

what with the Portafold needing a bit of a tidy up and Tear drop caravan sorting that would be enough expense for anyone.

Alas, it does not end there when you own a 55 Chevy, a Anglia 105e and a Wolseley Hornet which are all a drain on the money front.

We are glutton's for punishment but, we love it !! :lol:
